Arnold Bax: Tintagel

A rare thing for a YouTube video to exceed 10 minutes, but here is a remarkable performance of Bax's Tintagel in its entirety...



Let me point to another great website that features an excellent assortment of English music, Scandinavian music, Mahler, and good folk music as well....

If you're looking for more Bax and recordings of Tintagel, go here. The Barbirolli recording on the page also features a very good version of Vaughan Williams's Fifth Symphony. Have fun!

Cheers,
Angus
